Today we have new entries in our archive.

Coolmod sent dumps from a Crime City (Taito) PCB.Devices were all unsecured (three PAL16L8 and one PALCE16V8), I took care of converting dumps to GAL16V8 fuse maps and I successfully tested them on my board.

Team Europe sent 256KB binary dump (obtained with the Charles MacDonald 27C020 PLD adapter) of the PAL16L8 from a Fun World – MegaCard MC3 PCB.I reversed equations into a GAL16V8 fuse map which is untested for now since board is not working.Thanks to both for their contribution.

Lastly,  I successfully adapted into a GAL16V8 the bipolar PROM @7A – IC52 from a Vigilante (Irem M75 hardware) PCB , you can find .JED in the archive section.

Today we have some new PAL dumps.

Coolmod sent in dumps from a Taito Cameltry PCB, they were obtained from three unsecured PAL16L8, I took care of converting them to GAL16V8 fuse map and he successfully tested them back on board.He sent also a dump of an unsecured GAL22V10 found on the gun I/O board of an Invasion – The Abductors PCB  ( light gun rail shooter released by Midway in 1999), board was faulty so we assumed this dump as working.Thanks to him for the contribution.

I redumped the PLDs from a Vapor Trail PCB after testing the dumps we had and realized they didn’t work except one.Devices on my board were five secured GAL16V8 labeled by hand from ‘0’ to ‘4’.

Today we have the PAL dump from a Daimakaimura (Japanese version of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts on a CPS1 B-BOARD ‘88622B-2’ ) thanks to Silvio Grazini who sent the binary dump obtained with the Charles MacDonald 27C020 PAL adapter.I took care of reversing equations onto a GAL16V8 and Silvio successfully tested it on his board.Thanks again to him.

Taito F3 (PCB version) PAL update

 PAL Updates  Comments Off on Taito F3 (PCB version) PAL update

In the past days I got two working Taito F3 boards (PCB version) : Grid Seeker and Super Cup Finals).So I could test the dumps we had from Arabian Magic (thanks to ‘luiskiko’).Some dumps were from PALCE devices so I could successfully test them on GAL without any conversion, the remaining where from PAL devices so I first converted them in GAL format.PAL location and marking are the same between Arabian Magic and Grid Seeker since boards have same layout while Super Cup Finals has a slighty different one but it shares all the PALs (at different location) except for one which is unique and one with different label but same contents.

In the past days I dumped the PALs from an unusual two layers Crystal Castles PCB (with Atari EPROM strickers)

PALs were two PAL16L8 and three PAL10L8, all were unsecured.Then I converted them to GAL16V8 fusemap and Andrew Welburn successfully tested them on his board, thanks to him for the feedback.
